Data Services

MISTRAS offers a wide variety of data services. Our expertise in the PCMS product makes us the number one service provider in this arena. Whether you are a site that needs support collapsing multiple data sources into one single data source or you have been running PCMS for a number of years and need a database 'tune-up', we cover all aspects to help guide you to a leading edge implementation.

Data Conversions

Our Data Conversion Team is led by industry experienced professionals that have comprehensive technical and working knowledge of other IDMS systems including UltraPIPE, Metgrity, MaxiTrak, Credo, Meridium, and Capstone to name a few. The conversion team will diligently work with your onsite personnel to deliver you a timely and successful data conversion.

  • MISTRAS owns and operates a proprietary conversion program that links any data source type to PCMS, allowing you to collapse multiple data sources into one database.
  • We provide a systematic procedural approach in the data conversion process. Our team will analyze data conditions, cleanse legacy data, electronically script specific rules, and safely transfer all legacy data to PCMS.
  • Our team can electronically convert and link existing CML (Corrosion Monitoring Location) bubbles on existing inspection sketches to PCMS data

Database Optimizations

The Database Optimization Service provides a full diagnostic of the site's PCMS database. We analyze data conditions, configurations, implementation parameters, system settings, and overall data structure. A full report is provided with a priority of conditions discovered as well as an overall rating benchmarked against similar sites and detailing the necessary steps to improve the implementation.

Report Writing

The Data Service Team is comprised of individuals who have years of experience developing custom reports for a multitude of clients. We are experienced in all types of report writing tools and delivery applications such as Crystal, Crystal Server, Xcelsius, Business Objects applications, and PCMS report writers.

Data Entry

Any type of hard copy data can be sent to the PCMS data center for manual input. We will replicate your PCMS database at the PCMS Data Center, allowing you to continue to work within your production environment and avoiding any downtime. Upon completion, we electronically merge the data back into the production database.
